Student Panel Questions U. of Michigan's Handling of Athlete's Discipline

April 15, 2014

A review by the University of Michigan's student government criticized the university for failing to explain a years-long delay in the punishment of a football player allegedly involved in raping a fellow student, The Detroit News reported. A report from a task force created by the Central Student Government also said that Michigan's football coach, Brady Hoke, "knowingly issued false statements" about the case of Brendan Gibbons, a football player who was expelled in December four years after his 2009 arrest for the alleged rape of another student. The case is also under review by the U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights.
